Just checked with Gavin, he said no changes were made to the gain. I haven't had any problems with my AS2 using the T1, have the vol on my V at 10 with T1 volume just under half for normal listening. So apparently it was just the battery. No, I'm not the US rep for Tralucent, but the ever-colorful Lee730 might be, LOL!
lol go to hell ;).
